Shardlight

Score: 8.0
Ages: 12+
2016

Shardlight might not be Wadjet Eye’s brightest star but it is another solid point & click adventure. The game is set on a post-apocalyptic world so it’s rather bleak and violent, and filled with dark humour. Continue reading

Shadowrun Returns

Score: 8.0

2013

Shadowrun was one of the gaps in my gaming knowledge. The return created a lot of buzz and surely I was interested in checking out this cyberpunk/fantasy game, especially since it’s a turn based RPG. Continue reading

Penny Dreadful – Season One

Score: 9.0
(17+)
2014

Penny Dreadful already finished its second season last summer but I’ve only seen the first. I’m terribly behind in most of the TV series but I’ll try to put a word or two for some of the better shows anyway. This show is wonderfully bleak and gritty compared to the many beautiful, almost fairy tale like stories out there. There’s sex and blood and death. Continue reading

Movies From The 90s – 1999

The last year. Sorry about being lazier the further I got with the decade. But aren’t we going out with a bang? So much good stuff that I just want to weep. Fight Club and The Matrix are in the IMDb top20. Sixth Sense, The Green Mile and American Beauty a bit further down. Even skipping all these, I have a lot of issues limiting things down to 5. And I shouldn’t skip them really, they’re all great psychological movies, albeit from very different angles. Continue reading

Movies From The 90s – 1998

Nearing the end… First I thought I’d only have a couple of movies for this year but looking into it a bit more I didn’t end up having hard time at all finding five (and more) suitable films for the year.

I won’t bring the boring categories back, but there’s at least Johnny Depp! I don’t remember enough about these movies, I’ve only watched Dark City in the recent years, but they were awesome back then, so I still believe them to be awesome today – and will eventually confirm this by watching them again. The movies are arranged according to their current IMDb popularity. Continue reading
